question about MK2/MK3 protocol for setting AcPowerSetPoint / ESS 'Grid Setpoint'

Hi, i am programming some simple functions on top of the MK3 USB interface. I have read the 'Interfacing with VE Bus MK2 protocol' pdf from the site and i have most of the thinks working. My goal is to implement the AcPowerSetPoint via the MK3 interface.

Does anyone know that the correct MK2/MK3 protocol variable is for setting and getting the AcPowerSetPoint? (aka Grid Setpoint)


When i look at 7.3.13.1 'RAM variables' from the MK2 protocol pdf, i see ID 's 14,15 and 16 and that could be what i am looking for. Unfortunately these ID's don't seem to give the right values.

(Does anyone know the difference between ID 14 and 15? The text is the exactly same for both ID's but they return a different value..)


Thanks

Jeroen

hi jeroen, in this link there is a ram variable that you can use. I'm working on the same thing at the moment. I managed to set the setpoint in the MK3 but it doesn't seem to send it to the Multiplus or anything like that. I can also read the setpoint variables and it matches what I set. I'll let you know when I get further

Hi Danny-e sounds great! I also found that sample and made some progress but got stuck again. Please see my other question "

Problem implementing the example 3.6.4 from the ESS mode document via MK2 protocol "
